Translation of Ulloa's Relacion historica del viage a la America Meridional

The "Resumen historico del origen, y succession de los Incas, y demas soberanos del PerĂº", by Garcilaso de la Vega, found in the original, is omitted from this translation

John Adams was not the translator of the English edition, but merely furnished the "Notes and observations" and "Account of the Brazils."

The account of the scientific work of the expedition, written by Jorge Juan y Santacilia, was published separately, Madrid, 1748, under title: Observaciones astronomicas, y phisicas hechas ... en los reynos del PerĂ¹. It is not included in this translation
